CONTAINERS ON ORACLE CLOUD INFRASTRUCTURE
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is Oracle’s Enterprise-grade cloud offering. Get an intro to the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure platform and an overview of the projects our team have been working on to enable containerized workloads in our cloud. Get a preview of our Kubernetes as a Service offering and overviews of cool projects like:

* Terraform K8s Installer for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure
* Oracle Cloud Infrastructure’s new Kubernetes Plugins
* WebLogic on Kubernetes
We will also highlight Oracle’s sessions at KubeCon and announcements at DockerCon from last year, such as Oracle’s container images in the Docker store.

Kaslin Fields is a Solutions Architect at Oracle Cloud Infrastructure where she specializes in helping customers who want to run containers in the cloud. Most of her current projects involve running Kubernetes on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. Her experience with Docker started in 2014 with some simple hackathon projects. By 2016 she was working on projects involving hybrid cloud deployments of containers; spanning container clusters between major cloud providers and privately-owned datacenters.

INTRODUCTION TO AWS FARGATE
AWS Fargate (https://aws.amazon.com/fargate/) is a new technology that integrates with Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) (https://aws.amazon.com/ecs/) to run containers without having to manage any underlying infrastructure. What does this mean? With Fargate, you no longer need to provision or manage a single EC2 virtual machine; you can just create tasks and run them directly. Let’s dive into how Fargate works, why we built it, and how you can get started using it to run containers today.

Tiffany Jernigan is a developer advocate at Amazon for containers on AWS.
